In this guide I’ll be taking apart a Sony Vaio VPCZ1 laptop.
I’ll show how to remove the keyboard/palmrest assembly in order to access internal laptop components.
You can use this guide for accessing the hard drive (which is mounted inside the case), memory modules, optical DVD drive and wireless card. Also, when you remove the palmrest assembly you can access the laptop cooling fan and clean it up.
In this particular case I’m taking apart Sony Vaio VPCZ1290X model.
